Gyeongnam University, Bukil University 12-2 to advance to round of 16 with ease
In an eye-catching matchup of baseball greats, Gyeongnam Go swept Cheonan Bukil Go 12-2 in five innings with a cold game to advance to the round of 16. In the round of 32 game at Mokdong Baseball Stadium in Seoul on the 31st, Kyungnam attacked the North Ilgo mound from the beginning with 10 long and short hits.
After scoring two runs on two hits and a walk in the top of the first inning, Gyeongnam started the big inning in the top of the third when Kang Byung-wook reached on a wild pitch. The team then scored seven runs on five hits, four walks, and two errors, including a wild pitch, to make it 9-0.
North Korea rallied with three straight hits in the bottom of the third inning to cut the deficit to 2-9, but it wasn’t enough. Gyeongnam made it 10-2 with a run in the top of the fourth, then added a run in the top of the fifth on one hit and four wild pitches to make it 12-2 and set up the conditions for a 10-run fifth inning.
The pitching staff self-destructed as they allowed 12 hits and four walks. Gyeongnam, on the other hand, effectively shut down the North Korean bats as Kim Woo-hyuk pitched four innings of two-run ball and Kwon Jin-hyuk followed with a scoreless inning. The two pitchers combined for three strikeouts in the fourth inning, a contrast to the North Korean pitching staff.메이저놀이터
